'Have your say' gives you the chance to influence what happens in your
neighbourhood. 'Have your say' is a mechanism whereby issues identified through 'Have your say' meetings in your
neighbourhood, are taken to a 'Have your say' partnership panel where courses of action are agreed.
How to get involved
'Have your say' meetings give you the chance to meet your
Neighbourhood Team, have a say on how your neighbourhood is policed and monitor our performance.
You can find out when your next 'Have your say' meeting is by entering your postcode into
the In your area section of the website.
At the 'Have your say' meeting you can tell your Neighbourhood Team what issues concern you.
After the meeting, a smaller group called a 'Have your say' partnership panel decides on how
they will work together to resolve the neighbourhood priorities.
The Neighbourhood Team will report back to the next meeting on progress and will
update the In your area section of the website accordingly.
'Have your say' meetings are open to everyone.
If you can't get to the meeting, you can register your Safer, Stronger Neighbourhood priorities
for your own neighbourhood area online: register your priorities on-line here
